Title: One Kind Dance
Series: One Kind Deed Series
Author: Christine DePetrillo
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2022
 
 
Secrets had a way of destroying everything.
 
Trusting the wrong guy has huge consequences. Tessa Collins learned that the hard way and now there’s a black mark next to her name. She’s spent a fair amount of energy trying to outrun that stain, but it will always be there. The best she can do is throw herself into her dance career at The Nalu Resort in Hawaii. Pristine beaches, endless sunshine, and her wonderful best friend have done wonders to heal her soul. As long as she stays away from men, she’ll survive.
 
But ignoring men is hard. Especially ones that look like resort guest Detective Donovan Henley. When he plays the white-knight role to rescue her from an aggressive vacationer, she’s more than a little intrigued by his protect-and-serve attitude. Getting involved with a sexy Vermont cop who could easily find out all her secrets, however, is asking for disaster. So what if Donovan makes her feel things she’s never felt with anyone else? Tessa isn’t going to let another man disturb her rhythm.
 
Is one kind dance enough to keep two hearts in step?
 
One Kind Dance is a vacation-fling, small-town, contemporary romance that features a detective hero who protects the ones he loves and a dancing heroine with a checkered past.
 
 
 
 

 
 
“Almost there,” Donovan said. “This is my street.”

Tessa sat up a little straighter, but all she saw around them were trees, trees, and more trees. The darkness was all consuming apart from the twin beams of the truck’s headlights ahead of them.

“Does anyone else live on this street?”

Donovan chuckled. “Yes, most of the properties have long driveways though so you can’t see the houses from here.”

“Oh.” Everything around her little chunk of Kauai was right out in the open because it was a tourist area, but her family home in Maine had been like this. Neighbors spread out and everyone having their own little private world. “Do you get lonely out here?”

He shrugged. “Sometimes, but I spend a lot of time at work or in town. Mostly I just sleep here.” He navigated the truck around a large branch in the road. “I’m going to move that for the next guy. Do you mind?”

“Not at all.” She loved how he looked out for other people.

He put the truck in park and jumped out. He walked to the back of the truck and Tessa followed his path, but she couldn’t see him in the darkness. A scraping sounded as he must have slid the big branch to the side of the road. She had a moment to think she wouldn’t want to be on this road alone right now before Donovan was climbing back into the driver’s seat.

“Have you encountered animals up here?” she asked as they got moving again.

“Yup.” Donovan held up his gloved hand, counting with his fingers. “Bears, moose, deer, fox, turkeys, coyotes, raccoons, porcupines, beavers, squirrels, chipmunks, birds.” He put his hand down then brought it back up. “Oh, and spiders. Huge ones.” He walked his hand along her arm, simulating spider legs with his fingers.

She slapped his hand, stopping his motion. “Joke’s on you, Mystery Guy. I love spiders. I used to pitch a fit as a kid if my mother killed one that got into the house. I’d try to trap them peacefully in a cup and free them outside.”

“You got fifty percent more adorable with that story.” Donovan followed the road to the right where it bent, his driving cautious on the snowy road. “I try not to kill spiders and other bugs too, unless they get into the bathroom. Something about being naked around insects freaks me out.”

“Don’t want them to see your bits and pieces?”

He shook his head. “I’m selective in who gets that show.”

“I’m glad I made the cut.” So glad. Donovan’s bits and pieces had brought her so much pleasure over the past few days they’d spent together. She looked forward to making love to him in his bed as they had in hers.

“Trust me, my bits and pieces are overjoyed you made the cut.” He turned into a driveway that had almost no snow on it. “Wow, Christian must want something if he did this good of a plow job on my driveway.”

A single floodlight pierced the darkness ahead. Tessa couldn’t see much aside from the black silhouette of what she assumed was Donovan’s man cave. Her heart sped up as a garage door slowly crept up when he’d hit the remote on his visor. This was it. She was here. In Vermont. With Donovan.

 
 
 
 
 

Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees, conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil. She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the only roof over her head.

Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with bearded mountain men who build, often smell like sawdust, and know how to cherish the women they love. Today she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.
She lives in Rhode Island and occasionally Vermont with her pack–a husband, a cat, and a big, black German Shepherd who defends her fiercely from all evils.

BLURB: 

When my mother prostituted me to the Winthrop brotherhood, I wasn’t expecting my party of one to be anything but old.

Dark hair, green eyes and an arrogant smirk for miles, the mysterious man was chiseled perfection from that clenched jaw down to his Tom Ford lace-ups.

An hour with him was, let’s just say the cream on his thirty-five year birthday cake wasn’t the only thing he was licking.

A dream come true for any seventeen year old, and one I’d never see again.

That’s what I thought until a new teacher walked into the room at my school, a month later.

My reaction: ‘holy shit’

That’s until my father invited said teacher, apparently his old friend, to dinner.

My reaction: ‘God, help me’

Because Saint Sinclair is still a mystery, this time, the forbidden kind I want to indulge in no matter the repercussions.

Author Bio:

Born and raised in the coastal city of Durban, South Africa, she now lives in the City of Gold,

Johannesburg. Charlene’s days are an energetic mixture of a full-time job, a wife and mom to two beautiful teenagers and four dogs.

She holds a law degree and is a passionate events manager.

Charlene enjoys travelling, a Mediterranean cruise being her most recent venture. She hopes to retire to a beautiful seaside cottage where she can spend lazy days on the beach drinking cocktails and focus all her energy on writing.

She is of the firm opinion that one should not give up on a dream but rather make every attempt to get there no matter how long it takes.

Her love for writing stemmed from an avid interest in English at School, more so Literature and enjoyed writing short stories. She attempted her first full length novel fifteen years ago and although she loved the finish product decided she’d write mainly as a hobby and only recently sought publishing.

Believing writing is the wings to holistic escapism, she makes the time in her busy schedule giving life to her dreams of bringing together passion filled heroes and heroines in a happily ever after.

“… story with humor, witty banter, intrigue, suspense, danger, romance, and love, which leads to an entertaining read.” ~Wendy’s Book Blog

 
Control is something I exercise all day, every day, in my job and personal life.
 
My walls have been up for years, and it’s taking its toll.
 
Will I ever find someone I can be myself with?
Blayde has moved up the ranks in the police force in record time due, in part, to his dedication and focus on the job. His precision and cool head leave most in awe of him, but behind the uniform and tall walls lurks a man at war with his desires and baser instincts.
Victoria knows a lot about desire, anticipation, excitement, and seduction. Despite a disastrous first meeting, there’s definitely a spark between her and Blayde, but can she break her way through the steel fence around him?
And if she does, will she be able to cope with what she finds? Or will she be biting off way more than she can chew?
Rich City Boys – #Blayde is the fourth standalone novel in the Rich City Boys contemporary romance series. If you like sexy cops, lingerie shops, and steam right to the very last word, start reading now.
 
A happily ever after is guaranteed.
 
Smoothing a hand over my skirt and taking a deep breath, I step back and open the door wide. Light from the store hits his face, and I get my first proper look at Officer Sexy. He’s a freaking hunk, like movie-star-cop-hunk. Wow, he really is in the right profession. I bet he makes a fortune with tips and everything. He couldn’t look the part more. The uniform is perfect, the way he stands and the air about him, it’s so commanding.
 
And his face. Panty-melting good looks—dark blond hair, firm lips, and a jawline I want to run my tongue over. Finishing my appraisal of him, I meet his eyes, and that’s the end of me. I’m done.
 
This is the moment I decide. I truly know that I must have this woman. My reservations and self-preservation desert me, and I can’t think of a single reason not to pursue this woman to the ends of the earth. She pushes my buttons like nobody ever has, and when I withdrew, she fired up like a hellcat.
 
She wants this. She wants me.
 
“Take it off,” I say, motioning to her with my chin. I want her standing in the middle of my bedroom completely naked.
 
“Sorry?”
 
“You heard me. Take it off,” I growl. Even to my own ears, my voice is gruff and harsh. She moistens her lips with her tongue and swallows. There’s nowhere to hide, no room for being a bit coy or for shyness.
Author of steamy romance, right to the last word.

Title: Under Covers
Series: Redemption Series
Author: Denise Daye
Genre: Steamy Romance
Release Date: March 8, 2022

Will this scorching hot undercover cop break her innocent heart…or become her chance at true love?
Shy vet student Mila Kowitsch always does what her big brother Andrei tells her to. After all, he’s the one who raised her and made sure that she only ever knew riches.
But a girl can’t live in a golden cage forever. Especially not when her new boss at the vet clinic turns out to be the dream of every woman. So unbelievably handsome, so wickedly sexy and smart. Milla’s fallen hard for those dashing brown eyes. And as crazy as it seems to her, she’s pretty sure he wants her too…
It was just another undercover mission when Noah Carter has started investigating Andrei Kowitsch, one of the most high-profile criminals in the nation. Taking him down would finally get that desperately needed funding for his deteriorating station. So befriending Mila Kowtisch was meant to be his ticket to her brother; nothing more, nothing less.
But he never expected her to be so beautiful and kind. Her stunning smile brings out a protective instinct in him he never realized he had. She doesn’t belong in her brother’s criminal underworld. But a sweet girl like her also doesn’t belong in his.
He has to resist her… say no to his sinful thoughts. But those pretty blue eyes want him to play with fire, are begging him to cross the line. And Noah’s never been one to say no to a challenge. Especially not one that he positively, absolutely, can’t stop thinking about…
A full-length super-steamy romance novel with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
Denise graduated with a master’s in Social Work from an ivy league school and has spent many years of her life supporting families and individuals in need of assistance. She has always had a passion for writing, but it wasn’t until her own baby boy was born that Denise turned her passion into her profession. Whenever Denise is not typing away on one of her books, you can find her caring for her son (a.k.a. one of the toughest jobs in the world), binging Netflix with her beloved husband, or chasing after her puppy (who should technically be an adult dog by now).

Title: Just One Favor
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Steamy Enemies-to-Lovers, Fake Dating, Contemporary Standalone Romance
Release Date: February 11, 2022
Cover Design: Najla Qamber

Tyler Bennett and I hate each other.
The annoying jerk my parents forced me to play with as a kid grew up to be a sexy, grumpy baker who still can’t stand me. Sure, maybe I enjoy our bitter banter, his cocky smirk, his chocolate chip cookies. But there’s a reason I can’t play nice.
You’re wondering why—if I hate the guy so much—did I agree to be his fake date to his cousin’s wedding? Look. Just because I love being a pain in the man’s well-formed butt doesn’t mean I want someone else torturing him. Especially not the ex-fiancée who left him for his best friend.
One night of faking it takes an unexpected turn. Heated glances, lingering touches, that arrogant mouth against mine. One night of getting swept away in an attraction that maybe isn’t so one-sided after all.
Aside from this new, tentative friendship laced with sexual tension, something else has grown out of that night.
And Tyler and I will have to figure it all out…in about nine months.
Author’s note: Just One Favor is an enemies-to-lovers standalone romance with a hot side of longing, sexually-charged banter, a broken hotel bed, and chocolate cream pie.

Friend-zoned by a man who doesn’t remember getting naked with her…
…or meeting her at all, for that matter. These things only ever happen to Jana.
When she first moved to Puerto Vallarta to work with a local dog rescue, she was mentally prepared for the challenges of being an expat in a foreign country. But when she ran into the sexy Brit she lost her virginity to and he looked at her with a blank stare?
Nothing could have prepared her for that. Or for the way he still makes her swoon, years later.
Now that her job is ending and she doesn’t want to move back home, he’s made it his mission to help her stay. Does that mean he finally wants… more?
Happily ever after is not an option…
…not for Nate. After what he did, he doesn’t deserve it.
Instead, he lives on the go, always jetting off to the next business opportunity in a new locale. So why can’t he bring himself to leave Puerto Vallarta now that his work here is done?
Nothing to do with a particular brunette or the way she makes him long for a life he’ll never have. Because she’s simply a friend.
Still, there’s no reason he can’t help her achieve her dreams before he moves on. But how will he stay focused with her standing so bloody close every day?
Secrets in Paradise is a steamy friends-to-lovers romance. It’s a full-length standalone in the Paradise Ever After series, which can be read in any order.

Blurb:

It’s all fun and games until someone catches feelings.

A driven career woman who has no time for love. A professional baseball player who has no desire for commitment. But when they come together for their friends’ island wedding, the mesmerizing beach breezes have them wanting to find time for each other—if only for one steamy weekend.

Raine

I haven’t spent much time with Sophie since we were kids. When we started high school, we headed in different directions and never looked back. She invited me to her wedding this weekend. I don’t want to go because despite all our years apart, I know one thing hasn’t changed: her mission to find me the perfect man. I’ve told her I don’t have time for dating, but she never listens. I’m guessing she’s going to be pushing some guy at me the minute I get off the plane.

Alex

My teammate Seb’s getting married this weekend. I’m happy for him, but I can’t relate to it at all. He wants to spend the rest of his life with Sophie. I don’t even want to spend the rest of the night with the women who end up in my bed. I’m fine with that, but for some reason, Sophie’s not. Even with my best efforts to stop it, she’s been trying to find me love since the day we met. She told me one of her childhood friends is coming to the wedding, so I’m guessing that’s who I’ll be hiding from all weekend.

Let the games begin.
